Becoming a Senior Vinnie is a great idea! It allows you to help other people which always helps you to know yourself better.
At the senior stage of school, faith is important as you prepare to leave school and move into the world of further learning or work. Developing that faith by helping others through SSVP provides a sense of belonging which can last right into adulthood in a parish Conference. Your good works with Senior Vinnies will also contribute to your Caritas award in S6.
It can provide excellent experience in organising and participating in meetings. Understanding how professional meetings work and being able to demonstrate knowledge of roles and responsibilities is something which will be a useful life skill for your CV. You will also gain skills in interacting with members of the community as you carry out your helping work and find yourself growing in confidence. This is something which cannot be taught in a classroom but which is so important in preparing to be part of the world of work.
When you join Senior Vinnies, you will get your own badge, prayer card and pencil. Being a Senior Vinnie is challenging, enjoyable and brings many new experiences. You will attend meetings led by a teacher or another adult from the school or parish, (usually lunch time or after school), help with planning activities, then give your time to help other people. Helping others always makes you feel good!
